Around Rs 22 lakh allegedly collected through unethical practice
The Tamil Nadu government has asked Dr MGR Medical University to conduct an impartial inquiry into one of its affiliated medical colleges accused of unauthorised fund collection from final-year MBBS students.
The varsity had earlier raised the issue in its report where Stanley Medical College was found collecting at least Rs 22 lakh in an unwarranted and unethical practice on the pretext of showing “gratefulness to the departments” and making arrangements for external examiners’ accommodation and food.
According to reports, final-year students had to pay a minimum of Rs 10,000 each ahead of the exams.
The state’s health secretary, J Radhakrishnan, has ordered a thorough probe into the matter.
